After weeks of putting my Super Cub into prediciments beyond my skill level, I've finally managed to break something! Flying conditions were ideal this evening. Absolutely NO wind for the first time in weeks. I flew my HZ SC into the quiet evening serenity. No loops, no inverted flight, no hammerheads, just smooth flying on the calmest evening I have experienced yet to date. Decided to try a new approach pattern on my last flight of the evening. Flying a typical left-hand approach, I deviated beyond my normal back yard field. Shot a nice approach over the cemetary. Downwind and base legs are very easy. Final requires slipping between two rather unsubstantial trees.
Turned onto final a milisecond too soon, causing the left wingtip to ever so lightly clip the tree between runway 0 left and runway 0 right (intended target). SC snap rolls and hits spinner first on 0 left. Cracked the motor mount, leaving the motor dangling.
Do I make the easy repair or upgrade to a brushless? Maybe ailerons? I've been WAY cocky with this plane. It is so EASY to fly that I'm getting kind of bored with it. Kind of glad I finally broke something!
